IM-Magic Partition Resizer is a practical tool that allows its users to change the size of a partition with minimum effort. You can use it to modify the structure of your hard drive without having to delete files.
Disk partitions enable you to separate your operating system from other applications or to organize your files in different categories. Having multiple disk partitions is smart since it improves the hard drive performance and allows you to allocate space for specific tasks.
The size of each partition is important and you need to plan ahead based on their purpose. For instance, a swap or OS partition is based on the software requirements, unlike a document partition which can be freely allocated by the user.
However, no matter how much you plan, the hard drives tend to become crowded and require more space. If you are not planning on buying new hardware but still have additional space on another partition, this program can help you.
It is designed to reallocate the space on your hard drive in order to shrink or extend a certain partition. You can also use it to change the partition location in order to sort them in a different order.
The interface is easy to use and automatically displays the disk drives and the current partition details. In order to change the size of a certain item you can simply specify the new partition size and apply the changes.
The program allows you to queue up more than one operation in order to change the disk layout. For instance, you can reduce the size of two partitions, change their locations and assign the new space to a third one in one pass.
In order to apply the changes you need to restart your computer and wait for the modifications to be made. During the operation you can view the progress on your desktop.
Overall, IM-Magic Partition Resizer is a handy tool for anyone who needs to change the size of their partitions. It is intuitive and requires no previous experience for shrinking or extending disk partitions.
